Research in Nursing & Health (RINAH) is a general, peer-reviewed, research journal devoted to publication of a wide range of research and theory that will inform the practice of nursing and other health disciplines.
The editors invite research reports on nursing practice, education, administration, and history; on health issues relevant to nursing; and on the testing of research findings in practice. Papers on research methods and techniques are appropriate if they go beyond what is already generally available in the literature. Theory papers are accepted if knowledge is advanced; preference is given to papers in which theory is developed, rather than simply reviewed. Integrative reviews of the literature are accepted if gaps in knowledge are identified and directions for future research provided. Critical reviews of new books and other publications on research and theory may be included. Letters to the editor commenting on published articles or research and theory issues are welcome.
